The Israel Government’s delegation to the German reparations talks at The Hague will remain in London until the Cabinet takes a final decision on the future of the interrupted talks, it was learned today.

The Cabinet held two meetings yesterday at which Gershon Avner, delegation head, reported further on the situation, and there was extensive discussion. A Government spokesman said last night that the negotiations at The Hague had now entered such a “delicate stage” that further information was needed by the Cabinet before it could reach any decision.

The Foreign Affairs Committee of the Knesset will resume discussion of the Israeli-German talks only after the Cabinet has taken a decision.

The Cabinet voted adherence by Israel to the international communications treaty and international pacts for elimination of the manufacture of dangerous drugs and suppression of illegal traffic in these drugs.
